Hey rockstars! Christmas is quickly approaching, and so is the colder weather. Florida just received their first cold snap and I am reaching for my warm jeans and faux fur jackets with quickness!
Prior to Thanksgiving I received these fun Remy Skinny Jeans in Aztec from Raven Denim. If you aren’t familiar with the brand, Raven Denim was established in NYC in 2004. In 2008, Raven moved to LA under the ownership of Kris Park. In 2009, Ya-el Torbati joined the team as the Creative Director, and she has years of experience in the denim world, and the fashion world in general. Ya-el is the founding designer of Yanuk Jeans, and former co-owner of Deneer Denim. Ya-el brings a fresh look to the Raven Denim brand, while still holding true to the brand’s tailored philosophy – “attention to detail, vintage-inspired aesthetic, and extensive knowledge of fit yields exciting new cuts and styles each season.”
When I received these Remy Skinny jeans in Aztec, I was instantly smitten. This rustic orange hue is so fantastic and is reminds me of clay in the desert. The color is surprisingly versatile – looks fabulous with a number of colored tops. I especially love pairing this color jean with teal accessories (as I’ve done in my review photos) – it’s like a match made in color combo heaven, wouldn’t you agree?
This 5 pocket skinny jean has a 8″ rise, 11″ leg opening, and 32″ inseam – marking it the perfect skinny jean (not too long or too short, and sits comfortably on the hips). These jeans run true to size in my opinion, but my size 27 did stretch out a bit after a day’s wear. Although, I’ve stated in previous denim reviews that I fancy a jean that fits well, but isn’t too tight. I cannot stand the stuffed sausage effect (especially in a pair of skinny jeans)! This jean was extremely comfy, and the denim itself is soft and isn’t too thick or too thin. I think the jean was flattering in all the right places, but if you are worried about the jean stretching out and you are after a tighter fit, then I’d recommend going down a size on these.
If you’re a denim lover, or you’re on the hunt for a fab pair of skinny jeans, then I’d advise you to check out Raven Denim stat! Plus, don’t forget… denim is a great gift for the holidays! 😉
